New Year is the time to bid farewell to the previous year (2013) and welcome a fresh year (2014). It is the time to forget and leave behind all past memories that are no longer useful or worth pondering upon. It is the time for new beginnings and new starts in life. New Year brings along a message of new joys, new happiness, new commitments, and new promises for each one of us. It is the time to start afresh and do things that would make you and your well-wishers smile in delight. As such, preparations for the same take most of everyone’s time as they begin months before. Streets, stores, shop, and shopping complexes are decorated to the fullest with people buying gifts, cards, flowers, and other New Year accessories to wish their loved ones. To add to the joy and celebration of the occasion.
A New Year’s Prayer…
May God make your year a happy one!
Not by shielding you from all sorrows and pain,
But by strengthening you to bear it, as it comes;
Not by making your path easy,
But by making you sturdy to travel any path;
Not by taking hardships from you,
But by taking fear from your heart;
Not by granting you unbroken sunshine,
But by keeping your face bright, even in the shadows.
